|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
Log Cabin, 6 plus acres, a cascading waterfall, a clear pond, a quiet walk, tall trees, fresh air, a simple moment in time, all wrapped up in the mountain tops of the NC High Country. The Cabins of Sugar Grove invite you to plan your escape. Our cabin is 2BR/2Bath along with spacious loft that has sleeper sofas. We've thought of everything.... just pack your bag. Bring your favorite book or borrow one of ours. Take a walk, take a deep breath, take a minute to remember or to forget...... Spend twilight among the trees, spend an evening under the stars & around a campfire or curl up on a sofa with a blanket and enjoy a movie from our collection. Only don't miss this moment.
Comments from Our Guests: 'We loved the cabin. It definitely exceeded our expectations.'
'Late at night, I surfed the Internet to look for 'cabins in Boone'. I stumbled upon the web site for Treehouse. This was my dream -- we were hopeful that it would live up to the pictures on the web site......it's even better.'
'The Treehouse Cabin is well worth the trip from New Hampshire.'
“This house is beautiful! We loved the peace and privacy. Jane went “ice skating” on the pond and took an adventure through the woods. Charm and warmth made this house feel like home. Thanks for the stay”
“This was our third trip back to the Treehouse. The first was when Shawn proposed to me in October 2000. This was a special trip back for us because our 2 year old son Evan is with us and another on the way. He loved the porch swing, throwing rocks in the waterfall, playing with all the leaves, roasting marshmallows, looking for bears in the cabin with the flashlight. We look forward to returning many times. Thanks again for the beautiful place to stay.”
“It’s Friday morning. I’m sitting here on the porch and it’s 15 degrees. That’s hard to believe when you are from Florida. We came here in search of snow and were fortunate enough to have flurries on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We also came in search of family time......time together without the distractions of life. We spent our days in the snow, exploring the pond and waterfall, sliding down the snow banks, and throwing snowballs. We spent our nights playing board games and charades in front of the fire. The cabin was the perfect backdrop for our family adventure.”
David and I are Raleigh natives that enjoy retreating to the cabins as much as our guests. We are constantly striving to make the cabin more comfortable for family gatherings, fully equipped to entertain friends, and romantic enough for a getaway for the two of us. We are confident that you will fall in love with the property as much as we have!
Rebecca Bramble purchased this cabin in 2004
While searching for the perfect cabin for us, I had decided that the Banner Elk area was the setting that I most enjoyed. Close to shopping and dining, but not over done or over-priced like so many nice mountain communities. The realtor showed many a cabin and there was a cabin that I had truly liked, but just did not fill the desire that I had created in my mind’s eye.
There was a local “For Sale by Owner” opportunity, but I did not take it seriously because the owner had two cabins and wanted to sell them together. I had been settled on one cabin and wanted to buy outright and not take on a mortgage. The gentleman agreed to meet in Sugar Grove at the post office and lead us to his cabins for sale. The first thing that struck me was the drive up the back side of Valle Mountain was just beautiful. This is starting out on a nice tone, I thought to myself.
We pulled up the driveway and in front of the Treehouse Cabin. Nice setting, clean property, pretty cabin and then I opened the door. The symphony of falling water that welcomed me this early spring day was so overwhelming to me. My immediate thought was I must own this property and I had not even looked inside one of the cabins.
The cabins were in excellent condition and, although in need of a redecorating, provided a strong foundation on which to build. After touring Treehouse, we walked to the waterfall, along the stream, and down to the pond. The topography and natural rolling of the property was food for the soul.
On to the Bearclaw Cabin, where I was shocked to find that it had its own source of natural charm. The separate, gorgeous stream that can be seen from Bearclaw’s back deck provided its own surround sound. You can hear the stream from Bearclaw’s deck 365 days of the year. It is a healthy, vibrant courier of natural mountain water. Little did I know at the time that particular stream would be the source of our favorite family picnic spot, swimming for the kids, as well as fishing.
The Treehouse Cabin lives up to its name. It is a dwelling amongst nature. Surrounded by a waterfall, stream, and pond sitting on the back deck or in the hot tub leaves you with a sense of pure serenity. We enjoy the opportunity to explore the property, the water, and relax amidst the trees. Inside, the decor is rustic and romantic with the modern conveniences that make it an easy retreat on the eyes and the senses.
We can't tell you how much we enjoyed this cabin this passed weekend. Everything was perfect from the décor to the flatware. We will be returning!
My wife and I have stayed at the Treehouse property three times and the Bearclaw property atleast once. When we arrived for our 35th anniversary on August 14th 2016 the Treehouse clearly showed signs of inattention by the owners. The grass in the front had been cut by a weedeater and the clippings were thrown on the steps going down towards the house. The clippings were obviously going to be tracked into the cabin and our security deposit endangered. There was a cigarette butt left on the handrail going into the front door of the house obviously left by the carekeeper. We had planned on cooking steaks on the gas grill outside for dinner that night but when we discovered a propane gas leak (big chunk cut out and covered with electrical tape) and a grill covered with mold that plan changed. We worked with the owner to solve the problems and even cut short our plans for the next day to be back at the cabin for the gas repair guy, but the problem wasn't resolved during our five day stay. I did notice that the gas line had been repaired on the last day of our stay however the grill was still covered with mold. This property has not been maintained consistently over the last five years or so. The roof is heavily cluttered with limbs and moss the skylights are moldy, and the driveway needs some tractor/scrape work. In talking with the owner he emphasized that he lives in Raleigh and can't be there to solve problems at a moments notice...... BTW if you're using the upstairs bathroom sink the hot and cold water are plumbed backwards. After all this I thought that the owner might give us a break on our rent but no. There are some really nice cabins a little west of there and I think we'll stay there next year.
I have stayed in this cabin twice now and it is so perfect in every way. Rebecca Bramble is great to work with and the cabin is breathtaking. There is a waterfall up on the side of the mountain and a pond behind it. The hot tub is wonderful for relaxing after a day of skiing and the bedrooms are cozy. Highly recommend!
